Feather Bones are the Chine Bones off a Prime Rib Roast or the smallest ribs end ribs of a Spare of Loin Rib Rack. Both are called Feather Bones. Some people refer to them as Niblets.

Chine bones are the bones that are on topside of the back bone. When a beef or hog is properly split in half lengthwise, these bones resemble feathers.

Here is a LINK that talks about the Prime rib and feather bones. Scroll through the article until you come to the section on carving for more feather bone info.
